Who has better pre-order bonuses, Final Fantasy XIII-2 or Soul Calibur V?

Come the end of January gamers are going to have to decide which game to get and where. Amazon is offering $10 in credit for pre-ordering, Walmart has a similar deal. Gamestop is offering a Bobble Head for pre-ordering Soul Calibur V. Best Buy has a few good options as well. Neither game is getting the extensive pre-order options Batman AC and LA Noire received. Goozernation has a full breakdown of the pre-orders. (Amazon.com, Final Fantasy XIII-2, GameStop, PS3, Soul Calibur V, Wal-Mart, Xbox 360)

I'd say, at least in the UK, Final Fantasy XIII-2 does. I have both games pre-ordered. Got Final Fantasy XIII-2 Crystal Edition Pre-ordered at GAME and of course, many of you know that it has one of the best contents in a collectors edition in recent years. But GAME is also offering a nice steelbook case, and DLC for Omega as a boss/monster, as well as DLC for Noel and Serah's costumes. So I think that's the better deal

Soul Calibur V I have pre-ordered at Shopto and they're offering two bobble heads, of which I'm not sure of the quality just yet as I haven' seen a photo, and 4 art cards which I already have because they were giving them away free at the Soul Calibur V booth at Eurogamer Expo last year. Picked up about 5 sets haha

Don't forget the Episode i Novella, that's also part of the GAME pre-order bonus! :D

I don't like in game content being pre-order bonuses. I really wish they would stop doing it.

Yep I prefer $10 credits or physical items

I wish they'd just go back to giving us t-shirts to go along with COMPLETE games, like last gen.

I'm going to buy FF13-2 when it's $20 on amazon. Just like I did with FF13.

I will be picking up Tales of Graces F instead of FF13-2.

Wellllll let me see. They both offer great incentives to preorder.

Wait, why does this article even exist? I can understand maybe comparing the preorder bonuses of the same game, or even one of the same genre, but JRPG and beat'em up? Really?

Only good pre-order bonus is NO pre-order bonus.

I hate that I miss out on something that should be in the game, just because I bought it at this store rather than that one.

FFXIII-2 will have a lot more stuff you don't need.
